Here`s a couple of thoughts. I don`t know where East or West Metro is.
:-D Could you put a tagline with the location, like "Your Minneapolis
Landscaping Artists" or something? The contact info is so good, I was
instantly drawn to exactly that. It took me a minute to get readjusted,
then see the Minneapolis location later down in the page.
The green-to-black fade is nice, but in your main content area, I had a
hard time reading the white on green text. With the font size being
small, plus what looks like bold, plus being white, I just didn`t read
Since you specified, I checked the services page. Really nicely done!
The only "wish list" thing I`d offer would be clickable pics to show a
640x480 (whatever) in a window for each of the current pictures you`re using. You
do this in the Portfolio, and I`m thinking you`ll already have the
larger images somewhere easy to get to.
The Portfolio is cumbersome, with having to click "back" to get to each
thumbnail. That took me back to "Photos." Why not have only one tab?
Could you do one of those....what...Web 2.0 thingies where you bring a
picture forward into its own window? Or could you just do a filmstrip
with "previous and next" buttons?
Ah....I checked the below problem by viewing in IE 6. First, I was
warned about setting a Registry change for QuickTime, which I denied.
Then I saw your intent correctly. So I`m not sure where you`re drawing
the line on FireFox versions. I`m using Windows 98SE, and just haven`t
felt like taking the time to upgrade. But when I do, I`ll be limited to
version 2.x, not 3.x
When I was in photo gallery and clicked "back," the tabs blew up and
went to vertical, rather than across the page width. That`s `cause I`m
using FireFox 1.x.
Overall, though, it`s a nice site. Looks to me as though conceptually
the whole site is based on the Services. The main page starts the
categories, which then carry throughout the rest of the site. I`m not
sure if "Employment" should be where it`s at, maybe just to the left of
Otherwise, it sort of looks as if the company is in trouble, trying to
find either jobs or employees. Just my opinion, and based on psychology
rather than any hard information.
